Weston Area Health NHS Trust wins prestigious CHKS Top Hospitals award

James Rimmer, WAHT Chief Executive

Weston Area Health NHS Trust (WAHT) is one of the CHKS Top Hospitals for 2019, a prestigious award based on an analysis of data from all hospital trusts in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Top Hospitals awards are data driven and take into consideration all trusts in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The winners are decided by an analysis of over 20 performance indicators carried out by healthcare improvement specialists CHKS.

The data are regularly submitted by hospitals to NHS Digital to help track performance in a number of areas, including quality of care and patient safety. The performance indicators cover: safety, clinical effectiveness, health outcomes, efficiency, patient experience and quality of care. The indicators are revised annually to take into account any newly available performance information.

The Top Hospitals award is one of several awards that make up the CHKS Top Hospitals programme, including national awards for patient safety, quality of care and data quality. WAHT chief executive, James Rimmer, who attended the awards ceremony, said: “This is wonderful news, for both staff and patients. We hear so many kind words from grateful patients and always try to share these with staff so they understand the positive impact they have on the lives of our patients and their families. Receiving this award publicly recognises the high-quality, safe and effective care delivered here at Weston every day.”

Moyra Amess, Director, Benchmarking, Assurance and Accreditation, Capita Healthcare Decisions, said: “The Top Hospital award recognises outstanding performance in those areas which we believe are critical to delivering good patient care. We are delighted that WAHT is one of our Top Hospitals 2019.”

The CHKS Top Hospitals programme awards were held in London on 12 June and hosted by ITV News Medical Correspondent Sue Saville

Upgrade to local bus service

the newly improved bus service connecting Churchill and Langford with Bristol, and the opportunity for local people to try it out free of charge.
Launched in September 2018, the Unibus U2 bus travels between the University of Bristol’s Langford campus and Queens Road, Clifton. The service runs hourly on weekdays from around 8am until 6pm, providing an ideal public transport option for people heading into Bristol for work, shopping or leisure.

Following a successful first three months of operation and the introduction of an improved timetable in January, the U2 is being promoted to the communities of Churchill, Langford and Redhill with the offer of a free travel week from Monday 18 to Friday 22 February 2019.

The U2 is a public bus service operated on behalf of the University by First West of England using a fleet of modern, low-emission double decker vehicles with free wi-fi and USB charging points.

The service is part of First’s West of England network meaning customers can take advantage of the fare offers and ticket options available on all First buses across the region. Full timetable and fare information is available on the Bristol Unibus pages of First’s website.

But please note that during the free travel week, there’s no need for a ticket – customers can just hop aboard and enjoy the ride.
In advance of the free travel week, the University will be promoting the U2 service across the communities of Langford, Churchill and Redhill with a poster campaign and mailshot to local homes and businesses.


Changes to bus service A5

North Somerset Council and Carmel Bristol have reviewed the performance of bus service A5 and agreed to make the following changes from 4 February 2019:

Service A5 no longer serves Congresbury and Yatton due to low usage.

• The service is operated with one bus and one driver to reduce operational costs and to ensure the service is financially sustainable for the operator.

• The service operates four return journeys a day (three to Winford), with an additional return journey to Winscombe in the late afternoon/early evening.

• A Saturday service is reintroduced following customer feedback.

Connection times at Bristol Airport are improved:

o Morning journeys from Winscombe are timed to meet the A3 Airport Flyer service to Weston-super-Mare.

o Afternoon journeys are timed to depart towards Winscombe following the arrival of A3 Airport Flyer from Weston-super-Mare.

o Residents living in post code areas BS40, BS41 8, BS48, BS49, BS29 or BS25 can benefit from a Bristol Airport local area concession card for discounted (or free, with a Diamond Travelcard) travel on bus services A1 and A3 – more information at www.bristolairport.co.uk/about-us/community

We will be producing new timetable booklets, which will be available on the bus in due course, or can be requested by contacting North Somerset Public Transport on public.transport@n-somerset.gov.uk or 01934 426 715.
